On the surrounding cliffs, beaten by the strength of the vast Atlantic, local fishermen risk their lives wedged on dramatic perches with the thundering sea below. Year by year some of them, as well as some imprudent tourists, meet their death here.

View from the Cabo de São Vicente to the west along the coast "Costa Vicentina". The cliffs of this part of the coast are much steeper, and the surf of the Atlantic Ocean is significantly rougher than on the Algarve's south coast.
